Magnetometer at RSTO

RSTO team were down in Birr yesterday finishing up the installation of the magnetometer. I'm happy to report that it is now taking data, which looks nice. The data are being streamed to our server, and we will have near-realtime plots of Bx, By, and Bz up on next week. We're also going to calculate a local Kp index - a first for Ireland.
